Abstract:

This report describes the concepts, design feasibility, fabrication and testing of a dust cloud mass measuring system. The early-time less than 2 minutes measuring system featured an aerodynamically designed measuring canister and a helicopter delivery and sighting technique specifically designed for use on MISERS BLUFF Phase II, Events 1 and 2. The report describes the development activities and field testing. Due to operational not technical problems, no dust measurements were made in either of the MISERS BLUFF events. Conclusions, recommendations and a detailed drawing package of the measuring canister are also presented. Author
